Department of Communications

Our mission is to provide an intellectually rigorous path of study of communications media. The program emphasizes the development of critical thinking, superior writing capabilities, a contemporary visual intelligence, technical competence, and effective oral communication. By blending integrative learning with a deep understanding of communications theory, the department provides in-depth professional preparation for various fields in communications. The department faculty is committed to standards of excellence and to the creation of a climate where students strive to make a difference in the community.

Students actively engage with the challenge of communication for the screen, the page, and the web while gaining an understanding of the impact of the media on society and the individual.

These objectives are accomplished in a supportive environment of collaboration, creativity, and active engagement with experiential learning led by a faculty of professionals and scholars.
